Silhouette Of Torii In Tohkamori Inari

Torii in Tohkamori Inari
Shot in the city of Meguro, Tokyo tetsuOzawa

This shrine stood in the residential area

Tohkamori Inari Jina, a Shinto shrine stood in the middle of the sedate residential area. It was dedicated to 'Ukanomitama' which is associated with agriculture. Although this shrine is surrounded by the houses and no agricultural farms were seen around here, it could stand in the midst of the rice paddies in elder times. And the deity was respected by the locals much more than it is now.

The Torii was silhouetted against the afternoon light. A apartment was seen through the Torii.
